New to the site, been riding for about 5 years. Looking for a sled that can climb in deep snow but can also handle trail riding. Looking at a 2015 Indy 550 with 144 track. Has standard 1.3" Lugs. Can you put a track that has closer to 2" lugs on this sled for better performence in deep snow?

Need to keep my trail open, it has some pretty good vertical climb in some areas, tight space and turn. Fresh snow can be a foot or more at times which depending on snow condtions can be challenging for an old guy with what I'm using. This sled looks vesitile but concerned that the lug height is not enough. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I think a 1.3" lugx144" is more then enough for a 550cc to handle as it is?
Not much hp there so you have to be careful
Gearing down will help you
